CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Carson City Board of Supervisors is nearing a settlement with a woman whose dog was impounded and euthanized because she couldn't come up with enough money fast enough to save it.

The board has drafted a proposed settlement of $41,500 to consider on Thursday on the condition dog owner Jeraldine Archuleta, signs a waiver of all claims in the death of her shih tzu, Rollie.

The Nevada Appeal reports ( ) Carson City Animal Services put the unlicensed dog down July 30, five days after it was impounded. Archuleta says she asked for more time to pay the $100.

The city also is being sued by the former animal services manager who says she was defamed and unfairly ousted from her job because of a public outrage over the incident.
